Merle Haggard has canceled two concerts this weekend in New Mexico as a result of a continuing battle with double pneumonia.

His son posted a message via social media regarding the Country Music Hall of Fame member’s condition.

Clear up something. Dad isn’t sick again, he’s just still recovering from pneumonia. Takes awhile to get back to normal!

Haggard, who underwent lung cancer surgery in 2008, canceled a series of concerts in December after being hospitalized in California.
